Don’t cry for me, Si-iberia!

Today was our first and last free day in Irkutsk. We traveled by tram
into the center of the city and checked out as much of the town as we
could. Today was Souvenir Shopping Spree Day, where we took advantage
of purchasing Russian chocolates, Russian magnets, and other super
Russian things. We dined at an elaborately decorated Uzbekistani
restaurant, which of course served Russian cuisine. It was delicious
nevertheless, some of the best borshch we have eaten on this trip.
Tonight, we pack, we mourn, we cry, we sob so hard to leave this
place. We've had a blast, and plan to end this trip with one last
Farewell Irkutsk, Wellesley will see you again soon enough! In the
words of our translator: "Siberia forever, Siberia one love. I love
Xena and Kendall
